Post for Tomorrow

I will not be able to post a card/project tomorrow (I will post the Boot Loot winner though!), so I'll share a second card today. I made this for today's Sketch Challenge over at SCS. They're on SC179 now. Check it out!

I decided to make this card have a gate fold, and I was doing my best to give it a masculine feel. I did some sponging, did some imperfect stamping (ahhh!!!) and kept it simple (the easy part for me). As I often say, I hope it's not too simple, but I think simple is better for a masculine card. I'd love to know what you think! Take care!!

Stamps: Father Figure by Verve Visual

Paper: Basic Gray Textured CS, Whisper White and Basic Black CS

Ink: Basic Gray

Accessories: Brads from Stylized Silver HPH, crop-a-dile to make holes in BB CS, sponges
